Pass-Fail policy gets approval- Last Friday the Academic Council passed the student's re-quest for a pass.fail grading system. The system, proposed through the impetus of student government and the leadership of Norm Frost and Mike Richards, will go Into effect spring quarter. The system is designed to en. courage students to take classes in areas of interest outside of their major and minor fields. It is open to juniors and seniors; a maximum of classes of two classes per quarter may be tak-en. No classes taken on a pass, fail basis will count toward the major, minor, general area re-quirements or specific course requirements. Students are required to de. clare the pass-fail courses at registration and asked to in. dicate which classes will be taken under the system as the packets are checked. IBM cards will also be available at regular registration for pass-fail classes. Students are encouraged to take advan-tage of this new system and broaden their education according to Michael D. Richards. The following information may be helpful to students considering pass-fail classes. Eligibility of students for pass-fail grading: A. Open only to students with more than 89 credit hours completed.B. Open only to students who are not on academic probation or academic warning. Further criteria for a pass, fail system: A. A maximum of 18 credit hours of pass.fail credit can be used for graduation, exclu. sive of student teaching credit, special examination credit and convocation credit. B. A maximum of two classes per quarter can be taken for a pass-fail grade. . C. No course taken on a pass, fail basis will count toward the major, minor, general area requirements, or the specific course requirements. D. A grade of "P" would be "D" and above. A failing grade would be shown on the record as an "E" and counted towards over-all GPA. MECHANICS THE STUDENT declares his pass-fail course at registration and the declaration cannot be changed. If the student decides to withdraw from his pass.fail course he forfeits the opportunity to have pass-fail and withdraws under the current procedure for withdrawal (WP, WF). THE COURSE INSTRUCTOR would be unaware" of who is taking the class for regular grades or for pass-fail. The instructors would fill out grade cards as usual. THE ADMINISTRATION at registration will make available an IBM card on which the stu-dent would stipulate which class is to be taken as pass.fail. The administration would compute the regular grades and record the pass-fail grade. i sites Mky n tSCM ime The Weber State College ath-letic department today issued the following information regarding the sale of season tickets for the first round of playoffs on March 7 at Provo.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
